The transformation of the centre was made possible by a $3 million investment from the Better Indoor Stadiums Fund and a $500,000 loan provided through the Community Sports Infrastructure Loan Scheme.
The overhaul of the centre included construction of five new indoor basketball courts, which can also be used for netball, basketball, volleyball and other sports, and an improved gymnasium and group fitness areas.
The conversion has elevated the centre to the status of a state-level gymnastics facility, providing the perfect base for the Waverley Gymnastics Club to grow their numbers and host local and regional competitions.
From playspace upgrades to new sport centres, investments like these provide high quality and accessible places for Victorians to enjoy the benefits of sport and active recreation participation.
They also create jobs, stimulate local economies and fast-tracking community recovery by improving health, wellbeing and social outcomes for Victorian communities.
The Victorian Government has invested more than $1 billion in community sport and active recreation infrastructure since 2014.
Ms Spence acknowledged the Monash City Council, Federal Government and Waverley Gymnastics Club for their commitment and financial contributions to the projects.
